I am joining in the linky party .. beyond the picket fence.... 100 ideas under $100!
My cost to makeover the living room... paint and labor of love!
My old paint color was "Sands of Time" .. new paint color is Ralph Lauren "Natural Canvas" Same color I painted my kitchen last year. I love it! ALSO... while we were painting the dining & living also painted the ceilings the same color for a warm and cozy feel. It totally gives you a different feel in these rooms. Painted all crown and floor molding "Seaside Sand"
This is the only recent photo I have of the living where you can see the layout of the living area. This was taken at Christmas. You can see where I had the sofa at angle in front of the windows. After 8 years of angling the sofa I was really tired of it and I have 2 huge windows behind the couch. I was ready to take advantage of the huge window and light they bring in. The black mirror you see in far left hand corner is now in the dining room (revealing soon) and the tea cart in same corner was only in living area for holiday to allow more space for tree in dining area. The tea cart is now in the Shabby Room.
|BEFORE: This was the long wall in the living area. The cross collection and the blessed are now hanging in my hallway. The black pedestal holding the fern is now in the dining area.|
|Where the cross collection use to hang is now the print of red roses and underneath is a very old sampler... HOME SWEET HOME.. (Click on photo to enlarge)|
The Queen Anne chairs now sit in front of the windows... i love them there. The table between the chairs is a goodwill find - top is marble.
Walls bare here.. enjoying the new paint for now.
